I just recently purchased a 06 Vstar 1100 and it has idling issues and is sluggish when under power. The previous owner was in the military and the bike sat for quite some time. So i suspect the gas went bad and gummed up the carb, but i don't know how to work on it.


I would be willing to put some cash forward for the help, and i would be doing the work as I like to learn.


Thanks !

what did they charge you to remove, take apart, clean, reassemble, install, sync, and adjust air/fuel mixture?
